Adam Sandler & David Spade get a fresh start in The Do-Over red-band trailer

04.20.2016

david spade, adam sandler, the do-over

Adam Sandler and David Spade are together again in a feature film, taking their comedy stylings to Netflix for THE DO-OVER. Right off the bat, there will be some who write this movie off and say "No thank you," following the track record of both comedians to deliver half-baked and mediocre efforts fairly regularly. However, after giving the new red-band trailer for the flick a look, I'm not so quick to dismiss their latest pairing. 

Sandler as the man-child again feels like nothing all that new. It may ultimately turn out to be the weak link of the flick, too, when all is said and done. But there is something about watching Spade play things a bit more seriously than usual, more as the straight man minus the smart-ass-ness that has been draped over nearly every character that he's ever played, that has me slightly intrigued. Is there something to watching a David Spade beaten-down by life rise up as he's pushed to the limits beyond the complacency he's come to accept? There might be, and, if so, THE DO-OVER won't be nearly as bad as some are assuming at this moment. This could actually be a decent watch for a few hours as you sit on your couch with nothing better to do. 

THE DO-OVER starts streaming on Netflix on May 27.

Ridiculous 6 was the first Adam Sandler film that I actually liked a lot. So I'll give this a chance.

While it doesn't look great...

It looks worth at least checking out over the summer when nothing is on and nothing is going on. It also looks about 100 times better than that last piece of garbage they put out on Netflix.

I don't know what to think of this yet. I'm on board if it delivers on a level that exceeds this trailer. It might be worth a look, but I'm not sure.

This actually looks....good?

Going to have to check out a review first to make sure Netflix didn't just hire a great editor to cut a good trailer, lol.

The hell, this can't be a Sandler film because this actually looks funny.

I'm shocked. This actually looks interesting. After a decade of ignoring Sandler movies, I'll give him one last chance.

Looks great!

Looks great. This is the type of comedy I prefer to see these guys in. Rated R, mature, and funny. Not a silly accent the whole time. or aimed towards middle schoolers.

Wow...

First trailer that's made me laugh out loud in awhile. I didn't like Ridiculous 6 but this actually looks funny. It looks to be more on That's My Boy level(which is a guilty pleasure of mine).

I can see the ads now.
"From the contract agreement that brought you The Ridiculous Six".

This like one of those crappy indie comedy movies you only see or hear about when you go to Redbox. Come on Netflix!

Actually looks promising

Agreed, this does look kind of like Bulletproof. This is the Adam Sandler I like.

This looks pretty good

It reminds me a lot of Bulletproof, one of my favorite Sandler movies. This Netflix deal is turning out to be a blessing in disguise. This and the Ridiculous 6 are already better than his past 4 movies.
